NVM Express (NVME)

a high-performance interface protocol designed for accessing non-volatile memory (NVM), such as solid-state drives (SSDs), that provides faster data transfer rates and reduced latency compared to traditional storage interfaces like Serial ATA (SATA). NVMe is optimized for modern storage technologies and utilizes the PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) interface, which enables direct communication between the storage device and the CPU, bypassing legacy storage protocols and improving overall system performance.
